That's good news then Animal! you must be excited, hope everything goes well.
im getting a sweep on Monday, can't see this wee guy moving before then even though his due date is on sunday. Any mums had success with a sweep?

I'm excited but scared at same time as we will only be 37 weeks .
I've never had a sweep before hun so can't comment on that . You must be so excited meet your little man . Hope you manage to get things moving before then x

I'm jealous ladies! I've been up and down the stairs this morning and me and hubby just had a huge walk around the park to try and get things going. Having a bath later too but definitely think this is going to end up an induction he seems to be very comfy in there! It's funny how we spend to long trying to keep them inside and suddenly we are giving them their eviction notices😂

Hi ladies! It’s true Memza89x i’m doing everything possible to get this little one out as due date is Sunday and if he doesn’t come by then i’ll go for a sweep on Monday and it sounds a bit scary 😳
I’ve been having so many Braxton-Hicks (having one right now hahha) and sometimes they are so uncomfortable that I wonder if this is it?! Is it happening?!
I can barely sleep, I was very nauseous last night and that kept me up, I didn’t actually throw up but was very uncomfortable 😣
Hope you all feel good and things will start moving for all of us hehe xxx

I am having pedicure to relax myself before give birth.
I have been drinking raspberry leaf tea and bouncing on the ball. My due date is also on Sunday.
No sign of labour.

Oh animal, I'm sure little bubba is fine and will be pretty much ready for life at 37weeks, my first child was born at 37weeks and he is perfect and now is 10 years old.
Btw, we are having the same date for induction, I am getting induced on Monday too!! How exciting, we are getting closer to meet our little babies very soon x
Joerodiex, I never had a sweep before all I know is what I google so I can't give you anything on that but I will be thinking of you on Monday, not long to go now x
Memza, don't worry, maybe over night things start moving. I also tried few things to induce because of being too scared of induction but nothing worked for me x
Kitara, good luck, the ball should do it's magic so I heard. Unfortunately I don't have one x
05/10/2017 at 22:08
Grisinutza, sounds like you are getting really close too, seems this weekend and beggining of next week is going to be very eventful for the most of us x
Fingers crossed to us all! 😁

JoRodiex I had a sweep on Wednesday at 4pm and waters broke that night. The sweep was not particularly comfy, the consultant genuinely did swirl a finger round quite rough. However she explained successful sweeps work better if they are done properly x

i had cumin, raspberry leaf tea, spicy curry, walk and soon will be on my gym ball.

Still got a couple of bits to do . Eeeeek excited but scared as i no what to come and Going to really miss my big girls why I'm in hospital.
Been bouncing on my ball and walk in round try see if it will help things along a bit.
Defo looks like we're all going to busy over the next few weeks. Hope the sweep works for you ladies and you not put threw to much comfort .

I'm 37 weeks and 2 days tomorrow and I want my son here now! Been getting terrible back ache to the point it's unexplainable pain.. I'm not seeing my doctor until my 38 week check up which is this Wednesday coming.. anything to help bring things along thats worked for you ladies? I doubt he'll offer me the sweep!
07/10/2017 at 11:36
Hey ladies, hope you’re all good, I had an exciting night thinking my labour had started, been having period cramps, painful but bearable every 30 minutes, and big pressure down in my pelvis, spent most of the night on the toilet, nauseous as well so all the labour symptoms but they have stopped earlier, no signs anymore 😩😩. I got all smiley and excited thinking i’ll meet my little man today or tomorrow but false alarm... I’ll go for a walk after lunch and hope I can get it all started again 😍😍
Due date tomorrow!! How cool would it be if he actually came on time ☺️☺️
Still very scared of labour but the excitement is taking over and I’m really keen on meeting him soon!
I guess i’ll have to be patient and go for that sweep on Monday and take it from there!
Good luck with your inductions on Monday ladies and can’t wait to read your birth stories and see pictures of your little ones!
Sending lots of love and good luck to all of you! Xxx

I think we are all watching and listening to our bodies twice as much in these last weeks because any twinge could mean a start of something. I am soooooo ready.
Animal I'm same as you, thinking of my other kids being left at home for the time of induction and worried as I don't know for how many days it will go on. I am really hoping for a smooth going one but you never know. I am reading successful induction stories in most of my free time.
Wishing everyone the NATURAL labour kicking in before getting to induction date or sweep.
I'd better go and get active now to be one of them lucky ladies 😉

Belou if things get to much ring your maternity ward or midwife , It's better to be safe and have your mind put at ease. Warm baths are suppose to be good to ease the pain but, I must be awkward coz they make mine worse lol . Raspberry leaf tea , bouncing on ball erm curry all suppose to help but I can't say I found any help in them .
Grizinutza, Hope your Labour kick starts for you soon . It would be pretty cool if little one came on his due date .
Picababa I'm hoping the same . I was induced with my youngest girl and was in hosp 4 days, apart from then iv never been away from them for any length of time , there always with me , i no there safe with my mum but its not the same . Going miss them loads .
Looking forward to seeing everyone's birth announcements xx

Baby is happy inside.
One day i had Cumin Fried Rice, 8 dates, Spicy Curry, Raspberry Leaf Tea, bouncing on the ball and Walk. Baby is in and i only manage to sleep at 6am.
Yesterday, i had enough of restless leg. I did 40 Lunges, 50 Squats and squat on my toes, sit on my feets and finally slept at 1.38am.
Babies move a lot today.
Restless leg just kicks in again. Just did 110 lunges and 60 squat.. restless leg gone.. having a rest..
Baby is still in.. water did not break and drinking second cup of raspberry leaf tea

Just finish monitoring and scan. No more fluid in my belly. They going to find a bed for me and induced me today.
09/10/2017 at 11:13
grisinutza, did those pains turn into anything? kitara - you are amazing doing all those leg exercises! That's incredible - not sure we could do that on a good, non-pregnant day! Good luck today! Everyone else ok?
09/10/2017 at 11:28
I had to do it in order to get some decent sleep. If not, restless leg kills me.
In birth centre now getting monitored. They going to do a check on me. It seems like my water has been leaking and I thought it is just normal discharge. Hope my contraction come quick.
09/10/2017 at 11:50
Oh we're all rooting for you kitara!
09/10/2017 at 12:01
Wow Kitara I hope all goes well! And I'm also very impressed with your exercises very impressive! Can't wait to hear about baby
